  1. Eat smaller meals throughout the day rather than three big meals to prevent indigestion. Snacking regularly can also help to reduce headaches and energy lows.
  2. Avoid spicy and fatty foods that can trigger heartburn and sickness.
  3. Choose dry snacks like crackers, toast and breadsticks to keep your energy levels up without encouraging nausea Go for wholegrain versions to keep your fibre levels up and reduce the risk of developing piles later on in your pregnancy.
  4. Drink stomach-settling beverages like green/chamomile/ginger tea. However, opt for decaffeinated versions to keep your caffeine level down.
  5. Try adding citrus to your salads and meals, such as a spritz of lemon or lime juice. The tangy flavour will cut through fat and make everything taste lighter and fresher.
  6. Ice lollies and even a few simple cubes of ice can keep nausea at bay and keep you hydrated.
